The show follows Gates and his team as they travel around the world to investigate reports of paranormal activity, cryptid sightings, and legendary creatures.

The premise of the show is to use a scientific approach to explore the myths and legends of various cultures around the world. The team investigates and tries to prove or disprove the existence of these creatures or paranormal activities. The show not only explores the legends, but the cultural context and history behind them as well.

Each episode typically follows the team as they travel to a new location, interview witnesses and locals, gather evidence, and piece together the information they have gathered to try to solve the mystery.

The team makes an effort to immerse themselves in the local culture and collaborate with locals to learn about the legends and lore of the area. The show presents these legends in a non-judgmental way and is respectful of the beliefs of the people they encounter on their travels.

The locations the team travels to are diverse and include places such as South America, Asia, and Africa. Some of the notable investigations featured on the show include the search for the Loch Ness Monster in Scotland, the investigation of a vampire in Romania, and the search for a Mongolian death worm.

One of the show's strengths is its use of humor and banter among the team members. The cast is a likable and humorous bunch, which makes the show entertaining and enjoyable to watch. The humor never detracts from the seriousness of the investigations, but instead helps to break the tension and adds levity to the show.

Overall, Destination Truth is an entertaining and informative show that combines adventure, culture, and the paranormal. Gates and his team investigate legends and myths from around the world using scientific methods and cultural sensitivity.
